We are pleased to announce that Ellie and Albert, the EBF Great Horned Owls, are the proud parents of their first egg. It was laid on February 25th about 6:25 PM. Owls commence incubation with the laying of their first egg, so viewers can now watch the Ellie 24-7! Watch Ellie nesting here.
Ellis Bird Farm was well represented at the recent Prairie Conservation and Endangered Species Conference in Saskatoon. Alisha gave a presentation at the conference and Claudia Lipski and Myrna Pearman had a poster. Claudia is shown here chatting with one of the conference attendees about EBF!
Myrna Pearman delivered a well-received presentation at the Greater Edmonton Area Teacher's Convention on February 25th. The title of her talk was "An Inspiration of Bluebirds." She was delighted to have among the audience two former summer students at EBF, Ronald and Erica Van den Pol. Ronald and Erica both teach in Ft. McMurray. Like most former students, they remain enthusiastic supporters of Ellis Bird Farm!
